Golden 50 for Slimming World

Wednesday, 9th January, 2019 5:04pm

As Slimming World enters its 50th year, a group of Slimming World consultants from Cork celebrated half a century of success for the organisation by meeting TV personality and presenter Rylan Clark-Neal.

Rylan, who shot to fame after appearing on hit show ‘The X-Factor’, co-hosted the annual Slimming World Awards with the organisation’s founder and chair Margaret Miles-Bramwell OBE. Margaret opened her first Slimming World group in 1969, and over the last 50 years, the business has grown to become the UK's leading group-based weight-management organisation, today supporting nearly one million slimmers.

Rylan said he was thrilled to be invited to host the awards ceremony, which was held at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre. He said: “I met so many people who had lost incredible amounts of weight and made a huge difference to their lives. While the stories I heard were obviously very personal, the one thing they all had in common was how much support they received from their ‘Slimming World family’ and how so many of them were achieving their dreams. Every one of them spoke passionately about how they couldn’t have made those changes to eat more healthily and become more active without the support of their consultant and group every week. It’s clear that the people who run the groups each week are worth their weight in gold.”
